Immerse or swab few seconds at a time until desired results are obtained. Add nitric acid to lower the pH to 2.
Unless otherwise indicated, it is intended that all reagents conform to speci? Electrolytic at 20—60 V for 1—5 min. Immerse with gentle agitation 1—30 s. ASTM E is a method of etching a metal sample to reveal its microstructure. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Agitate solution gently until coloration begins, allow to settle.
Sometimes a few passes on the?
Electrolytic at 9—12 V for 1—10 min. Austenite turns brown on overetching. Electrolytic at 6 V for few seconds. To mix, add the HCl to CrO3. Add H2O2 dropwise to maintain action. Composition given will saturate the solution with NaCl.

Precaution—Also poisonous by ingestion as well as skin contact. A superscript epsilon e indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval. Additional information can be obtained at the EPA website3.
Colors second phase constituents. HF attacks and HNO3 brightens the surface of titanium. Good microstructural results require significant preparation to obtain a mirror finish with no scratches or edge rounding prior to etching.

Immerse specimen face up, gently agitate sstm until coloration begins, allow to settle.
Immerse 4—30 min depending on depth of worked metal layer. Pure Be Be alloys Chromium Base: Up to 30 mL of HCl may be used for more vigorous action. This is imperative with etchants that give off noxious odors or toxic vapors that may accumulate or become explosive.

Users should be aware of the type of asttm involved in the use of all chemicals used, including those hazards that are immediate, long-term, visible, invisible, Copyright?
The HF may be varied to give more or less etching. After etching, water rinse, alcohol rinse, and dry. After polishing, the surface must be carefully cleaned.
